could say fiscal cliff, but even i'm getting tired of it. what about what goes on in washington? in the back of your mind, did it have anything to do with? >> as real estate, we're just a byproduct of the economy. and people, there's so much uncertainty out there today, and people aren't going to make major long-term decisions until they know what's really going on. so i think it drives everything today, you know, what's going on in washington and, you know, with this fiscal cliff and, you know, what the impact will be of it. >> well, it's an important point. how is the project funded? where did you source the funding for the development? >> that's one of today's challenges. you don't get to the same costs you would typically get them. it requires more equity and piecing together the banks to put together a loan of the size needed for this. probably our greatest challenge would be -- because we're looking to build. this is only 1,700,000 square feet, in the first phase 6 1/2 million, where's the rest of the capacity to come from for the construction loans that we need? >> the banks

together to talk about the fiscal cliff. no word on any progress and the president will be in detroit today to speak about the economy. joining us right now is cnbc's chief washington correspondent john harwood. john, you had a great column over the weekend in the in, times whether you took a look back at what happened in 1990 where things were set up for a grit debate but maybe things were easier at that point because you didn't have the 24-hour news cycle. you had other things that made it easier the last time around. what does that lead us to think this time around? >> well, there are ways in which it was more difficult, as you just alluded to, becky. but there are a lot of similarities, too. there are warnings that the economy is going to take a huge hit if a multi year budget deal was not enacted. you had a republican party led by a president who had made a no tax pledge and who was trying to figure out a way out of that. when he finally did that, that's when the negotiations took on a faster pace. and i do think here the fact that boehner and president obama met yesterday on a sunday is an indication that there is a prospect for a deal. the question is going to be what doe

. >> where has the volatility been? i think with the fiscal cliff, so many people were expecting we're in the middle of december. the world was supposed to be falling apart by now. that was the threat to the politicians in washington. >> i agree. it's fascinating. after leaving e-trade i got involved in a company which its business model is really about solely serving the fee-based market advisory market so registered investment advisers and fee-based advisers. so we see perspective of individual consumers through their lens, their clients. what they're basically saying, we do surveys, we happen to be in the process not unlike the days of e-trade of doing focus groups, and what we're hearing is 85%, 90% of their clients are absolutely fearful of what the fiscal cliff means. and they are afraid that the volatility is yet to come. it's interesting. it's a little like -- >> so they're out of the market? they're on the sidelines? >> i think there are two different behaviors. you have the self-directed which think about the e-trade model. and so on self-directed i think you've heard consistently a lot of people have withdrawn. trading volumes are dawn. they're uncertain of what to do. you probably are seeing less volatility.
